Stellar HE

What is Stellar HE?

Stellar HE is an exciting executive development programme for diverse (Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic - BAME) staff aspiring to leadership positions in higher education (HE). The programme is research based, building on 21st century leadership models and thinking to further leverage the effectiveness of diverse leaders in middle to senior management positions across higher education. 

The programme places diversity as a distinctive strength at the core of authentic leadership development using Factor 8, the cutting edge leadership framework for diverse leaders. It addresses the distinctive, but often subtle, challenges and variations to the unwritten rules and models for success that BAME leaders face and must master as visible minorities operating in a majority HE context.

For more details about the programme, please see the Stellar HE 2017/2018 brochure.


The UCL Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Team along with the UCL HR Organisational Development Team are sponsoring a number of places on this programme. 
To apply, you will need to:

  • Be from a BAME group
  • Be grade 8 or above
  • Have the support of your line manager(s)
  • Be available for ALL dates on the programme.
